Zabbix Room for Improvement

Dror Mor
IT Administrator at a aerospace/defense firm with 501-1,000 employees
There are a lot of things that can use improvement which is why we are seeking a new solution. Network monitoring is a problem. It gives too many false positives. For example, it notifies us that a server is down while I'm using that server — the server it claims is down — to do the search. A moment after the search is complete, everything is OK again. It's called flapping. It has some flapping control, but it's not as good as other products. I used to use Icinga and it is a better product in that respect. View full review »

The Zabbix dashboard is somewhat complicated. I like to use this product to monitor the network. I like to have a dashboard to monitor our situation and the correctness of other routers. View full review »

The Java gateway for monitoring Java applications didn’t work for us. Our JMX Service URL’s are somewhat complex, but we were able to write our own JMX checks. View full review »

The capacity planning feature and SLA monitoring need to be improved. The capacity planning feature should give to administrator recommendations regarding the actions to be done on systems to ensure scalability and stability. In addition, currently this feature only provides basic information (disk usage time left, cpu consumption forecast, etc.). You cannot predict easly the capacity planning of virtual infrastructure or scale-out network storage. View full review »

I wish it had more options for personalizing the product, such as being able to include your company's logo without editing text files. More templates for specific devices. View full review »

It is a little complex to config and implement so I'd like for them to make it easier to config, for example, a configuration for SNMPv3 or trap listener on it. View full review »

The product is already great. Wanting something more could take the focus off the product. However, correlation of events would be a wonderful addition. View full review »

I want Zabbix to improve the UX/UI. Zabbix doesn't use a JavaScript chart for images, and I want them to improve this. View full review »

* UI is the most crucial aspect of Zabbix, which must be reviewed. Some functions, such as authentication type, are one-way functions. * Adding a mapping subsystem would be helpful. View full review »
